Exploring the Grand Canyon's Majesty at the North Rim UTV Fun Run
Embarking on a journey to the Grand Canyon promises breathtaking vistas, but what we encountered during the North Rim UTV Fun Run organized by UTV Offroad Adventures was nothing short of awe-inspiring. The natural splendor we witnessed transcended our wildest expectations, leaving us in perpetual wonder.
The weather was amazing! Upon our arrival at the Kaibab Lodge, we were immediately captivated by the serene setting. Nestled within a picturesque pasture with the national forest as its backdrop, this lodge was a true oasis. From the deck, where we savored cool beverages, we gazed upon the lush green grass and towering trees that stretched into the horizon. The experience was nothing short of breathtaking, offering a refreshing escape from the sweltering heat, and a chance to inhale the pure mountain air. And let's not forget the culinary delights that awaited us—mouthwatering food that was the perfect complement to the surroundings. As the evening wore on, the lodge became a hub of camaraderie, where stories flowed as freely as laughter. The Saturday night raffle event was a highlight, filled with lively exchanges and tales of the day's exhilarating rides.
Speaking of the rides, both were nothing short of spectacular, showcasing the North Rim of the Grand Canyon's awe-inspiring beauty from every angle. It's a humbling experience to ponder the creation of this national monument, and it truly transports you back in time.
We were joined by over 70 UTVs and 125 adventurers, all seeking the thrill of exploration amidst nature's grandeur.
Bright Angel Point: A Scenic Marvel
One of the rides led us to Bright Angel Point, renowned as one of the most picturesque spots on the North Rim. Sitting at an elevation over 1,000 feet higher than the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, this vantage point offered a mesmerizing panorama. To the east, the stunning Bright Angel Canyon unfolded, while to the west, Transept Canyon stretched majestically. Below, within the canyon, we could hear the roaring of Roaring Springs, a pristine source of water gushing from a cliff face 3,100 feet below the rim. The trails were a testament to nature's artistry, and each stop along the way was a spectacle in itself. This loop was around 80 plus miles and shared multiple astonishing overlooks.
Point Sublime Trail: A Serene Oasis
Our second ride took us to the Point Sublime Trail, a hidden gem known for its majestic views. This trail, less traveled by many, allowed us to enjoy the tranquility of the wilderness, punctuated only by the awe-inspiring vistas. It was a place of pure serenity, where the silence enveloped us, offering a chance to embrace the peace and quiet while savoring the views. Along the way, a chance encounter with a coiled snake added a touch of excitement to the experience, reminding us of the untamed beauty of the natural world. This loop was also around 80 plus miles with some of the best overlooks the Grand Canyon has to offer.

I was going to buy a trailer hitch set up to go into my Hisun E1's receiver. All I can find for sale are hitches with 1-1/4" and/or 2" square shafts. The hole on the receiver on my E1 measures roughly 1-5/8" square. I'm guessing it takes a 1-1/2" hitch. Where on earth do you get a hitch that size?
